Red Thread Sisters

Good news! A new adoption book for older readers is now available! Carol Antoinette Peacock, author of Mommy Far, Mommy Near, has just released Red Thread Sisters (Viking/Penguin, 2012). It’s a poignant page-turner about eleven-year-old Wen, who is finally adopted but must leave her best friend, Shu Ling, behind. Wen promises Shu Ling she’ll find her a family of her own in America. But time is running out.  Can Wen keep her promise?

Based on the author’s experience, Red Thread Sisters is a story about the power of family, the bonds of friendship, and challenges of adjusting to a whole new life. The book is geared for readers nine and up, but teens and adoptive parents have loved Red Thread Sisters too. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Love Without Boundaries.  Visit www.carolpeacock.com for reviews, a trailer, and more.

    I picked this up a few weeks ago to read with my 7 year old, but after deciding to read the first chapter as a preview, I was hooked! It’s a well written story that made me cry for the children left behind… I highly suggest it!!
